I thought this was a pretty decent book until it all of a sudden ended. There is lots of build up then, just when it starts to get interesting it's done. It was like reading a book half way and then ripping the last half off and throwing it away. Very frustrating. Note the #1 in the subtitle, the author must have figure this was the only way she was going to get to #2.
However, if you DO get the meaning of the title, you will find this book to be deliciously cheap thrill. These are the voyages of the starship Intrepid. A fun read.
Wow! This book wasn't exactly what I expected it to be yet I was still totally captured and thrilled with the story and outcome. What I expected was a book about Lestat, which this is but not in the way you would expect. This book brings together so many of the characters from previous books weaving it all together in an amazing story where all come together to face a common foe. It feels like old home week with Louis, Armand, Pandora, Marious, David and so many more wonderful creatures. Added to the mix are two new characters, Rose and Victor who are central to the tale. Then of course there is Lestat.
The book ends in such away that it begs for more to come. Surely the tales of Rose, Victor, Prince Lestat and the tribe will not end here.
This is as fine as any of the previous volumes of the Vampire Chronicles.
I very rarely read nonfiction but stories I had heard of the Code Talkers were so intriguing that I really wanted to read this book. The book was incredibly interesting as Mr. Nez shared not only his story of being a code talker but also of his upbringing, how his Navajo traditions and beliefs often conflicted with his military duties.
This is a great story filled with pride, sadness and compassion. A wonderful memoir rich in tradition and history.
Having read the previous 2 installments of this tale, I was eagerly awaiting the release of the final chapter. I was not disappointed. I am also sad to see the story end. A witch and a vampire in a forbidden relationship on a quest, their special children, the witches, vampires and demons who object to their relationship and finally, a crazy vampire son out to terrorize his sire.
It's really a young adult book but those are my guilty pleasure. I was really disappointed when the tale finally came to an end.
This was a little different than I expected. The pace is a little bit up and down, sometimes fully captivating, others bordering on boring. Overall I enjoyed it.
One of the best Koontz books in a while. Captivating from the beginning, interesting and unique characters, wrapped in a good story.
The story kicks off with a bang and doesn't stop until the end, and I see potential for a sequel. A husband and wife social worker team take their infant son and 6 troubled teens who are in their care for a final camping trip on a secluded island. When a campfire ghost story starts to become reality, the twists and turns are unexpected.
I really loved this book. It is a great story, not gory for those who avoid King for that reason. A retired detective is taunted by the murderer who got away. In the process he meets a woman who brings new hope to his life.
One of my favorite things about this book is the way the main character interact with each other. Sometimes it makes you smile, other times it makes you want to cry. The characters of Bill, Janie, Jerome and Holly all interact so well and interestingly.
Loved the book.
But this book dies a slow painful death from the very beginning. Don't waste you time or credits.
I found this book hard to follow due to the number of subplots. It was constantly jumping from one scene to another, many of which either had such a thin connection or the connection was so deep in the book that it was irrelevant.
The book also ended suddenly without resolution, so it you really get into it, you have to continue to buy the rest of the series to get to the answers.
